“We share viewpoints on global issues and trends and their impact on business models, industries and economies.”
Each morning, during IMD’s OWP (Orchestrating Winning Performance) program, the MBAs have been conducting thought provoking Executive Briefings that continue to share and develop their findings from the Navigating the Future conference.
Tuesday, 27th June saw ‘The Impact of Automation on Business, Government and Society: The Optimists vs The Pessimists
Wednesday, 28th saw ‘Responding to New Consumer Trends’ & ‘Food Security’
Thursday, 29th focused on ‘MENA – Economic Challenges & Political Context’ & The New Silk Road – Three Country Perspectives
and tomorrow, MBAs will be discussing ‘European Competitiveness’ & ‘The North America(s) & the Rise of Populism’
At the same time, three other groups of MBAs have left campus to take their presentations to audiences in London, Munich and Zurich – hopefully we’ll be hearing from them over the next couple of days!
This weekend once again brought alumni back to campus from all over the world. For the first time, we combined both the All MBA Alumni event with our traditional Networking Party, giving alumni the chance to really make the most of their return, and the current MBAs the opportunity to truly experience and feel a part of our global network.

“It’s a kind of magic
A kind of magic
One dream one soul one prize one goal
One golden glance of what should be”
It is on these notes of The Queen that, in my mind, the 2017 edition of Navigating The Future turns to the end. How was it possible that only one week ago we were in a remote monastery lost in the north of Italy, without even an internet connection, and then in four days we were delivering presentations at an unprecedented level of professionalism on global challenges and macro-regional issues that impact the development of the world and the life of hundreds of millions of people? How could it be possible? Continue reading “Navigating The Future – It’s a kind of magic”
Katrin Siebenbürger Hacki was one of the 18 alumni to give up their precious Saturday for the first of our two traditional on-campus Simulated Interview days.
